The owner of a Virginia Beach pizza shop is giving a 15 percent discount to people who carry a gun or bring a concealed-handgun permit into his store.
Jay Laze, the owner of All Around Pizzas and Deli, said he planned to keep the discount for a limited time but might make it permanent; 80 percent of customers have brought in guns since it started Friday, the Associated Press reported. One customer toted an AK-47.
“I’ve always been a supporter of the right to carry,” Mr. Laze said. “You’re either on one side or the other, and it seems like more politicians are against us rather than for us. I want to show them they really aren’t representing the people or the Constitution they are sworn in under.”
Since the shooting deaths of 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., President Obama has pushed an ambitious gun-control agenda that includes bans on so-called assault weapons and high-capacity magazines and tighter rules on background checks for gun sales.
